The XK range features classic, ground-hugging proportions, with a long hood, powerful contours and minimal overhangs. Its sweeping, athletic lines exude immense visual energy.
The benefits of aluminium construction are particularly pronounced in the convertible models. Exceptional rigidity, torsional stiffness and excellent power-to-weight ratios deliver uncompromised handling and breathtaking acceleration.
Slimline Bi-function HID Xenon headlamps with integral LED daytime running lights give XK a distinctive visual signature.
They feature automatic levelling and washers, which operate with the 'screen wash-wipe' function. Cornering lights illuminate the areas to the side of the car at low speeds when the indicators are being used, or at large steering angles, for example, when parking.
The optional Adaptive Front Lighting system features dynamic pivoting headlights that react to the car's speed and the driver's steering. It can deflect the headlight beams by up to 15 degrees, to cast light deeper into corners.
The roof of XK Convertible folds itself neatly beneath a striking aluminium tonneau fitting seamlessly flush within the body - reducing buffeting at speed and compact enough to retain XK's iconic shape without compromising storage space. The triple layer roof, laminated to provide a taut and totally waterproof outer coat, incorporates innovative ultra-thin insulation material to deliver unprecedented protection from weather, wind and road noise.
Heated powerfold door mirrors fold back to help with parking or driving through narrow spaces. They also feature auto-dimming to reduce glare at night.
FRONT AND REAR PARKING AIDS
Front and rear parking aids provide an audible warning that alerts the driver to the proximity of objects. Arrows on the centre console Touch-screen provide further information on their location in relation to the vehicle.
REVERSE PARK CAMERA
The optional Reverse Park Camera offers extra safety and convenience and can be particularly useful when parking. Discreetly located in the boot lid finisher, the camera is linked to the front and rear parking aids, and transmits pictures to the 7 inch Touch-screen.
A range of 14 different alloy wheel designs is available (depending on the model and option packs chosen).
XK AND XKR BLACK PACKS
The optional Black Pack brings even greater visual assertiveness to the XK and XKR.
It features 20" Kalimnos gloss black alloy wheels and gloss black finishes to the front grilles, air intakes, side power vents and boot lid finisher. On coupé models there are also gloss black window surrounds. In addition, the XKR Black Pack includes a body coloured Aerodynamic Pack, consisting of a front splitter and larger rear spoiler.
RAIN-SENSING WINDSCREEN WIPERS
Sensors automatically detect rain on the windscreen and switch the wipers on at the appropriate speed.
